Must being using to much gas to heat the house lately to be looking at alternative heating sources. 

 

Maybe you should get one so I can borrow it on the weekends :D

I have watched this video before. Very neat, but my comment was, "You mean it doesn't stack the wood too"?

looks like the driver eats a lot of saw dust. It is a nice operation.

This is posted somewhere else before.

 

There are better alternatives for wood processors.  That one is pretty cool, but I went to a yard that sold fire wood.

They had a setup that had a conveyor belt on it.  You laid a log down, up to 10' it pulled it in, cut it, split, and ran it up a conveyor belt to dump on a pile.  Worked awesome.  I watched it for about 10 minutes and it was puking out wood non stop.  14" cut, split into 8 pieces, feed, 14" cut, split into 8 pieces,  Non stop wood coming down.

Yes I think I have seen that posted on here before. It is a neat setup!! You would have to process a lot of wood to justify the expense.

The only problem I see is none of the trees around here grow anywhere near as straight as those trees.

That is some neat engineering. It doesn't look quite as fast as a stationary setup. But then the startup cost would be lower.

Figure in the cost of a skid that has enough hydraulic power to run it you might as well buy a stationary machine. But then a skid steer has many many uses

Yeah. I was thinking of it as if you already had a skiddy to use.

I looked into those.. its not a simple quick attach set up. if i recall it was 38000 bucks. a statonary set up is 20 with a lot of toys on it.. not worth the money at all...

Yes, and that problem applies to any processor I've ever seen. Good straight trees, are usually

worth more as saw logs, so the cull wood gets thrown aside for firewood.
